Why 'Glyphosate Residue Free' is important for CBD brands

Bluebird Botanicals' Chief Marketing Officer talks about the certifications and testing necessary to produce clean hemp-derived CBD products.

As the number of lawsuits against Monsanto continue to grow, there has been much talk about glyphosate, the main active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup–as there should be. Rulings in the initial cases against the giant chemical producer have found that the company failed to warn users of the increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer when using the product over extended periods of time. Concerns have grown as traces of glyphosate have shown up in popular granolas, cereals and other food products.

He also outlines the other certifications the company is seeking, including organic, and describes how important the testing process is to produce truly clean, prideworthy products.
